2 Months ago I finished climbing the mighty Kilimanjaro. At first all I could remember was how hard it was .. Now ..I can finally romanticize about it.:)
The top of the mountain or what seemed like the top that would only come out in the early morning and in the middle of the night. It was also a symbol of hope – a reminder of our end objective. Like how they say it’s good to visualize where you want to be – it helps you get through the struggle of getting there.
The morning sun from our camps. It always served to give us that renewed energy to conquer a new day.
When hiking and looking around you all you saw was the rest of the mountain. Larger than life.
Steepness in all its glory 🙂
Being able to see Mt Meru in the distance from Kili
Literally being above the clouds..unimaginable.
🙂 Being amongst the clouds…
To get to this spot I ventured a little bit past the camps where nobody else was and sat here for a while..just me and nature and not struggling to breathe. Trying to take in this moment right here.
The Snow-capped Peaks of Kili
I remember looking back at the sun and letting it warm me up and giving me strength to finish off the remaining part of this amazing journey. I think taking strength from the beauty that surrounded me was essential in getting me to the top.
Making our way down from the top and realizing that anything was possible with hope, patience and determination.
